Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America active (full) member. Author of the QUESTS OF YORE Role-Playing Adventure Game, based on the Disney/Pixar movie ONWARD.

GM style

Runs games for all levels of TTRPG experience. Setting genre is flexible and cross-genre play is supported. Games tend towards the sandboxy—players are free to pursue what is most interesting to their characters. The step-dice-pool-based game system (an advanced version of the Quests of Yore system) is easy to learn and encourages in-character reactions and teamwork. All games are run to the expectations of the players in regards to content. (G, PG-13, choice of prohibited subject matter, etc.)
